We express our sincere gratitude to Mr. B Vijayakumar, Managing Director – L G Balakrishnanand Bros. for giving us the opportunity of undertaking this project at his facility. We thank alltechnicians, foreman and executives for explaining the practical aspects of theoretical knowledgethat we have acquired at our college. Working at LG Sports, we were exposed to a wide array of technical detail, in the field of race car engineering. Having access to India’s only Formula – 3certified tracks, helped us do extensive testing on our prototype and hence optimize its designand performance.We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors, without whom the projectwould not have been possible. Their constant encouragement and morale boosting support madeit possible for us to represent India and our University at the world’s toughest engineering designcompetition.We would like to thank Dr. Ranjan Pai, CEO MEMG, for being one of the first people in theindustry to believe in our potential and funding us to a great extent.As a team, we would also like to sincerely thank Dr. N Y Sharma; without whose vision and belief in our capabilities this project would not have taken off. It was due to his constantguidance and indomitable support, that a project of this scale was possible. We would ever remain indebted to him, for all what he has done to make our dream project become a reality.We take the opportunity to specially thank:Mr. Leela Krishnan,Mr. Narain Karthikeyan,Mr. Sanjay Sharma,Mr. C Rajaramfor their kind support and encouragement at every point of the training, in the form of this project, without which this would not have been successful.

With the relentless improvements in technology the older machinery are being replaced by newmachinery. The handling of such highly sophisticated machines, no longer remains the work of asemi skilled person. It has opened a new horizon for young graduate engineers. But to contributein an efficient and meaningful manner towards completion of the assigned task, at the industry,suitable training is needed.
The knowledge of the system, as a whole, is a must for an engineer to do the trouble shooting inthe smallest possible time so that production is not affected.Therefore, industrial training plays a vital role in developing practical knowledge. Thus,industrial training is not only an academic requirement but a professional necessity too.I’ am honored to have been a part of the team, which built Manipal University’s first FormulaSociety of Automotive Engineers (FSAE) race car. This project, as a part of one of the first projects of the University under the Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate (CDIO) paradigmserved as the platform for rigorous industrial training for the team members. The car was built atthe work shop of Indian racing enthusiast Mr. B Vijayakumar at the Kari Motor Speedway inCoimbatore.In this practical training report I have tried my best to introduce and explain all the importantsections of the massive project, of which I have been a part for the past two and a half years.
